From Our Chief
Dear fellow Kincaids, Kinsfolk and anyone interested in the great and ancient Clan Kincaid,
I am delighted to welcome you to this Kincaid Clan Society website which I hope you will find enjoyable as well as informative on all matters Kincaid. Over the past millennia or so the extended Kincaid Clan has produced some fascinating characters; these include the Kincaid instrumental in the recovery of Edinburgh Castle from the English in 1313 A.D., to the celebrated seventeenth century witch-pricker(!) John Kincaid, to the rather more recent Rear Admiral Thomas C. Kincaid of the U.S. Navy who served with such distinction under General MacArthur during the Second World War.
But the Clan is not just about characters from history - but about today. We live in a fast-moving and ever-changing world where our roots and sense of belonging are constantly challenged and under threat. Within our thriving Clan society we encompass Kincaids young and old, living in Scotland, England, Europe, in North America, Australasia and no doubt elsewhere. We have recently enjoyed a Clan Gathering in Scotland with many Kincaids coming from such places and we can all enjoy the sense of belonging within the wider Clan Kincaid family across the globe. Whatever our differences and distinctions, we are all part of the Clan Kincaid family.
We have an extended and ancient family history and present-day togetherness of which we can be very proud - and of which few other families can boast. I hope for some visitors to this site it might be the beginning of a life-long journey of discovery and kinship which enhances this experience for all of us.
Madam Arabella Kincaid of Kincaid
